Orion is a registered BLM Mustang
Orion was captured outside of Nevada. BLM Stands for Bureau of Land Management. They capture wild horses when there is too many for the land to support. Then they are sent to be trained and start a new life in captivity. This is so that they will not have to be culled.
This is Spazzy and Grumpy
These guys are native to the African Sahara Desert
Fennec foxes are the smallest canine in the world. They used to be poached for their beautiful fur and were on the endangered list. Later it was found that they breed well in captivity and now they have reintroduced them back into the wild. They are doing very well now.
Gravy and Sunny

They are thought to be the oldest of domesticated cattle in the world. They are used for milk, meat and as draft animals in other parts of the world. In India they are sacred and are only used for milk and draft animals.
Benny was donated to the sanctuary. To protect our livestock and companion horses. He is a cross between a mini horse and a mini donkey.
Mules are used to protect livestock. They will kick and yell at any predators that are trying to hunt and kill: chickens, cows, ducks.... etc. This usually scares off the predator.
